Bryan, Sarah and Kevin welcome their friend Jill for a lengthy discourse about the wonderful world of Oz.
Hey there dear readers, Kevin Sutorius here. I’m back with another new series, “Lego to the Movies” where I compare various Lego sets with their movie counterpart. For my first entry, I am covering the brand new Back to the Future Time Machine set, that was just released on July 23rd. What makes this set so special is that a Lego fan designed this and Lego made into a sellable set through their project called Cuusoo. The idea behind Cuusoo (lego.cuusoo.com) is that you submit a design, and if 10,000 people vote for it, the Lego company goes through the legal steps to try to make the set a reality. Additionally, another special feature of this set is for every BTTF set sold, a portion of the revenue goes to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s research. The set is sold globally starting August 1st through lego.com or participating Lego retail stores.
Bryan is back with the Nerd crew to talk about Fantasy films and the different sub-genres they encompass. We also get to some listener feedback that starts an epic quote fest of overtly British proportions.
The Iron Man trilogy is one of the best sagas around, almost all due to Robert Downey Jr.’s performance. On the surface, the movies are connected, but I wanted to dig deeper to see if, as Tony puts it, he really IS Iron Man. In this discussion, I am going to breakdown the Iron Man trilogy movie-by-movie with the evolution of character Tony Stark. For the sake of argument, I will include the movie The Avengers, as the events in that movie are pivotal in the plot/story arc of Tony for Iron Man 3.
